Today's #leadership quote
"For there is always light, if only we're brave enough to see it.
If only we're brave enough to be it." Amanda Gorman
I thought that this line from the inauguration poem delivered by Amanda Gorman was extremely pertinent to the journey that we all face as leaders. Throughout our journey we will be faced with hardships and challenges that make the journey difficult. At times those obstacles seem to block the sunlight and leave us with only the darkness of despair. It is then when the future looks most bleak and we are near the breaking point that we must redouble our efforts and continue to press forward. We have to have the courage to stay on the path, take uncomfortable action and overcome those obstacles knowing that the reward at the end of our road is worth the sacrifice to get there. We need to find the light when others only see the darkness. Leadership is never easy but when things are humming along smoothly it may seem so. Unfortunately the weather always changes, winter comes and that is when the mettle of the leader is tested. It is then that boldness is required to find the light and win the day. By doing so each of us can become the light that shows others the way. The journey is difficult but the destination is worth the sacrifice
